nomination not since george w. bush. democrats generally do. but the reason this is starting so early is because you have a competition between people like cruz and rand paul to be the nonchristie in this race. i'm for ted cruz for the republican nomination or failing that paul. republican friend of mine said to me this weekend if either of them wins the nomination, they'll get spanked in the general. he won't vote for them. but that's what's happening here. chris christie would have a hard time winning iowa. he's conservative but believes in governing. his opening comes in new hampshire which is what happened with romney and before that will with john mccain. >> nia, professor, thank you so much for covering all the spots. thank you. to developing newses in afternoon, james whitey bulger who spread terror around south boston for decades before disappearing for almost 20 years was convict this had afternoon on a raft of racketeering charges including his participation in the murder of 11 individuals. the gangster now faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison. kristin
